Adrenal cortical carcinoma is a rare neoplasm in infancy. Most cases present with Cushing’s syndrome, hirsuitism, precocious puberty, or rarely inappropriate ADH secretion. Associated congenital anomalies and concurrent central nervous system and hepatic tumors have also been documented. Occasionally, the tumor may be non-functioning. Three cases have been seen at the M.D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute with a variety of presentations and outcome.
